Rover-4.0.0-rc3 (the 3rd beta) has been released and is available using the Ground Stations’ (MP, QGC, etc) “beta firmware” link. The changes vs -rc2 are in the ReleaseNotes and also copied below:
- IMU heater control parameters (see BRD_IMUHEAT_P/I params)
- Bug Fixes:
a) DO_CHANGE_SPEED fix (was being ignored)
b) SET_YAW_SPEED in Guided mode made consistent with Auto mission command handling (yaw in degrees, speed in m/s)
c) BLHeli fix to RPM calcs and telemetry (aka 0x8000 error)
d) Fence upload is less strict about altitude types (fences don’t have altitudes)
e) Pre-arm message fix to reports AHRS/EKF issue (was blank)
f) Sparky2 autopilot firmware available
g) Startup message “AK09916: Unable to get bus semaphore” removed (was not an error)
This version has been “rebased on master” which means that it is a new snapshot of our latest development firmware and thus includes a few other smaller changes as well.
The major fix is 2a (DO_CHANGE_SPEED fix). Thanks very much to Jimovonz for finding this!
Our hope is that this is the final release candidate before we push Rover-4.0.0 out as the stable version so any last testing people can do in the next week or so is greatly appreciated!
